If you love beautifully done art work that just flows and transitions from page to page with fun dialog and perspectives into religion, sex, and individuality, then this is the title for you. If nothing else, then just get it for the art work alone to look at and marvel over.
Hoping Marvel will with another printing run of this but it's not looking likely so far.
I am not disapointed with my purchase at all. Sky Doll as a piece of work is worth adding to your collection. This hardcover is really nicely presented. The artwork is reproduced beautifully, and the production values are high in this graphic novel.
For me, this book was worth the purchase just for the artwork alone. I would give it 5 stars if this was just an art review without hesitation. If you love sequential art, and the styles of Disney crossed with the detail of manga art then this is for you. The colour pallettes were also very inspiring.
I had fun with the story, but that wasn't the reason why I made my purchase, so I'll leave that aspect of this book at that.
As for the actual hard cover, I have a couple of very minor comments which I think would have made it even better. This is my wish list:
1 - I wish the artwork was presented in it's original size and format. I would much rather the larger size art on the dimensions of paper it was designed for... Does the English speaking audience really need everything in "comic book size" for it to sell? Having said that, it dosn't look bad the way it is presented. I just couldn't help being made aware of this because of the white spaces at the top and bottom of each page.
2 - I wish the sketchbook section at the back was bigger! You do get a couple of sketches with a very 'press release style' interview. I would have loved this section to be much chunkier.
I'm really glad I bought this despite the wish list, and it is really happy sitting nearby me on the shelf :)
I can totally see this being made into an animated series or movie one day.
I had originally gave an incorrect address and needed it to be reshipped to the correct address. They gave me no problems and did everything they could to help me!
I just received the package and it is in perfect and was shipped in almost no time at all.
Thank you so much for all of your help!
I can't wait till Chapter Four comes out and is available in the US.
